Not running myself but know others who've installed on different cars (no Auroras). Should give you better pedal feel, and that alone is a huge plus IMO.
One concern that I'm aware of is road dust/grit can get caught in the stainless webbing, work its way in and abrade the rubber hose underneath. The thought is they won't last as long as the rubber ones and on top of that you can't see any abrasive damage or cracking.
I'm kinda torn on this one...I see the logic in the argument above but I gotta believe it would take a loooong time for any abrasive wear to matter. But the shorter lifespan is probably why you don't really see stock SS lines.

Haven't seen this in Auroras, but I've seen a LOT of motorcycle guys do it, swearing that it's a tremendous improvement, brakes feel better, blah blah blah. When I ride the bikes side by side, one with, one without, I don't see any more difference than any normal unit-to-unit variance.
Before you say that motorcycle brake lines are shorter, keep in mind that a car's brake lines are already mostly steel tubing, the only rubber hose is that short flex piece right at the caliper, long enough to allow for steering and suspension movement. A motorcycle's brake lines are rubber hose the entire length, and replacing with stainless steel makes a nearly unmeasurable difference.
In competition, that little extra edge in feel at maximum braking is worthwhile. On the street, not so much.

Yeah Rora I have read a lot of their white papers. Didn't think to look there about the braided hoses. Some of the Riviera guys claim a better a feel with an F-Body caliper upgrade and stainless braided lines. However, that's a $100+ 'upgrade' for some shiny lines seen through open five spokes. Front calipers are cheaper than the little stainless lines haha. OEM replacements are dirt cheap.
I think I am just going to go with the Bonneville GXP 21.25" front lines. The driver's side for 95-96' is supposedly 13" long but and passenger being 18". Which is weird and doesn't look right, but admittedly have not measured!
